This 60,000-square-foot collection of exhibits and interactive displays calls itself “more than a museum.” Located in Times Square and sitting on the former grounds of the New York Times printing press, it now welcomes significant traveling exhibitions centered on multiple disciplines. Past exhibits have covered topics such as the Titanic, Leonardo da Vinci, King Tut, the Dead Sea Scrolls, the terracotta warriors of China and even Harry Potter.
Ranging from historical and educational to entertaining, the exhibition center promises interesting, unique artifacts and storytelling with an emphasis on personal experience. Exhibitions often include multimedia and are designed for immersive discovery and exploration of the topic or theme at hand. There is also a cafe, learning center and events space on site.
